A month ago I was wondering if the remainder of
August would be hot enough to beat the average highs for July this year.
The forecasts didn’t hold out much hope, and in the end reality matched
them. August was cooler on average than July by 0.7°C, and the
maximum temperature for August, at only 25.0°C, was 3.6°C lower than July’s
28.6°C. Which was the greatest month? July.
An excerpt from the monthly weather summary tables for Jul - Sep 2021
At this point in time August’s average temperature
is lower even than September’s. As of 23 September this month has an
average maximum temperature of 22.7, the same as July, which means it is
0.7°C above August. Will it keep the crown, and maybe even beat July? Watch
One thing is for sure though, September has already beaten August’s highest
daytime maximum temperature - 27.3°C recorded on 8 September.
